Beach Robe {take 2: upcycled}

After making my first Beach Robe I knew there would be many to follow, plus I had to redeem myself and get the bias tape on the tie right. So a few weeks ago when my sister in law’s mother brought me an old bathrobe to use for the material, I knew immediately what I was going to make with it…the Beach Robe from MADE. It was perfect timing since my little nieces first birthday was coming soon and plus it was her Grammy’s old bathrobe. Love it, an upcycled beach robe from Grammy’s old bath robe!

The fluffiness of the material was so perfect and luckily lightweight. It was much easier to work with then the beach towel I used for the first one. I didn’t even pin the bias tape on ahead of time and that seemed to work much better for me. I just took my time and sandwiched the robe in between the bias tape and sewed as I went along.
For some reason I ended up only buying 2 packages of bias tape instead of 3. So I didn’t get to redeem myself and couldn’t add the cute little tie. So instead I decided to make and add some buttons. This time I also trimmed out the hood on the inside seam and think that made the robe look much cuter and more put together. Now I’m wishing I did that with my first one too.
Look at the top of the robe, can you see the cute little design in the material? When I saw the design on the bath robe I knew that I had to incorporate it into the beach robe…it is just so sweet!
My little girl was pretty happy to model it for me, but had a hard time parting with it.
I love how the material and fabrics look so sweet together.
But what I love more, is that Grammy’s old bath robe is now a sweet little beach robe for her granddaughter. Now three more beach robes to make…for my kiddo’s this time.
